agrees that that action is necessary. gregg: steve hayes, is the senior writer for "the weekly standard" and a fox news contributor. steve, great to see you. the deal being bandied about right now to raise taxes on higher earners actually doesn't appear to do anything to fix the problem, that is, all the new revenue from higher taxes would be used for more spending. as we understand about 850 billion in new revenue would be spent on eliminating the fiscal cliff automatic spending cuts and extending unemployment checks. is it true not a dial would go to cutting the real problem, the debt and deficit? >> yeah. in one scenario that is absolutely the case. we shouldn't actually be surprised. it has been clear at least for a short amount of time that this hasn't been the goal of these discussions. i mean for all the talk about deficit reduction and despite the fact that this began as an effort to rein in spending after the 2010 elections, it is clear democrats in the house and senate, i would argue the president, haven't been serious about long-term spending cuts. gregg: maybe they're not se

? joining me now, senior economics writer or for "the wall street journal" steve moore. steve, thanks for making it in today. >> hi, jamie. we're having a white christmas in chicago. so it is a lot of fun. jamie: i know chicago, burr. the numbers are also pretty chilling for retailers who do what percentage of their business during the holiday season? >> you know, those months of november and december are absolutely crucial, jamie, for the retailers. about 40 to all their business all year is done in those two holiday months. so it's, not very good news that the retail numbers came in, you called them lackluster. and that's probably putting it charitiably. this was the worst year since 2008. it is actually, surprising, jamie, because if you look at some other indicators, consumer confidence had actually bumped up a little bit in the last couple months. we have, i wouldn't read too much into this because other indicators of the economy are looking up right now. jamie: so do you think it's an anomaly that it isn't going up? is it an indication if we go over the fiscal cliff there's conc

the past decade. steve centanni has more from us from washington. >> multiple deployments and combat injuries are said to be causing this troubling spike in alcohol and drug abuse among active duet military. democraticked by the institute of medicine. their study concluded earlier this year and sponsored by the department of defense shows that 20% of our active duty military personnel report they engaged in heavy drinking in 2008. binge drinking rose from 35% of personnel in 1998 to 47% in 2008. drug abuse of illegal and prescription drugs rose from 2% in 2002 to 11% in 2008: the report recommended better screening and that's just what the marine corps is doing, according to a directive issued in month the purpose of the screening program is to provide gheanders and additional tool to provide marines and sailors in their commands at risk for the adverse effects of alcohol abuse or misuse. the report notes that alcohol has long been a part of military culture. but it recommends better leadership on the frish top commanders all the way down. and it says this spike in cases results part
faced over past three decades politically. gregg: what of john boehner though? steve latourette, who said, the same 50 or 60 chuckle heads who always screw things up, speaking of the tea party group. >> yeah. gregg: he said it is not really the speaker's fault. is it the speaker's fault? >> well, look, i think boehner was, he is in a bad spot. there are no good outcomes here for republicans. there have been no good policy outcomes for republicans. i watched the steven latourette comment, one of the things that struck me, these are the guys, 50 or 60 chuckle heads came here and screwed things up. the presumption congress was working just fine before they arrived. i would argue that it is nice we have people in congress who are actually serious about looking at the long term consequences of our overspending over these past couple of decades. that is where the real problem is. he can say they're stubborn and not willing to compromise and all things he said repeatedly as he made those criticisms but the reality is they're actually trying to solve the long-term problem. he may not like th
. >> without the farm bill, it really makes it uncertain for ehat you should do next year. >> reporter: steve is a pharmacist here and a rice farmer. the people are nervous. >> very nervous. wh reporter: what are they saying when they're coming in? what are you hearing? >> "what do we do?" you know, they don't know what to do. ht's so uncertain right now that the banks don't know what to do. the farmers don't know what it do. they're out there plowing the land, getting it all prepared for next year, with total cecertainty. >> reporter: at stake, $154 billion in federal farm aid and isop insurance, sidelined by the fiscal cliff stalemate. benefits from the farm bill also guarantee rice farmer l.g. ronn that his costs are covered when crops are bad or demand drops. you'd be out of it if there was no subsidies? >> i will be looking for another job, absolutely. >> reporter: you just can't make enough money to make a go of it? >> those risks are too great. i could lose it all. if the market... if i plant rice and the market price is $12, and the next four months, it goes down to $6, i've lost a mi
. that is the word from his vice president. steve, how bad is the president's condition? >>reporter: it looks like the condition is very serious. this was the fourth operation for a pelvic-area cancer for chavez, an undisclosed fact of the type of cancer. he has not been seen or heard from publicly in the past three weeks. all this is happening in cuba, and now the vice president has gone from venezuela to cuba marking how serious the condition is. requests have been made to the people of venezuela to pray for chavez and new year's celebration are canceled. >>trace: if president chavez dies who replaces him? >>guest: that is tricky. we are right in between an election back in october and a potential ininauguration on january 10. he has said he wants his vice president, a one-time bus driver, to replace him. it is not clear that would happen if he died now they have to hold an election in 30 days but it is more complicated than that. if chavez dies before the john 10 inauguration, that election is run by the head of the parliament. but if he dies after january 10, it is run by the vice president so
office party. 30-year-old steve bongolan of san jose was stabbed early friday outside an office complex on oakland road where a holiday party was taking place. detectives have not released the number. >>> a bomb squad found explosives inside his home. police were called to the home on the 1400 block of g street just before 2:00 p.m. yesterday. the walnut creek police bomb squad disposed of explosive devices and bomb making materials found inside the home. police say the suspect 53-year- old frank trout has burns on his face and hands. he was arrested on manufacturing explosive devices. >>> marines and sailors will be required to take random breathalyzer tests twice a year. the new policy comes after a september study sponsored by the department of defense found that bing drinking is increasing among military personnel in all branches. >>> happening now, santa's helpers at lefty odules have collected about 7,000 toys so far. sounds like a lot but their goal is to collect 15,000 toys for the san francisco firefighters program tonight. lefty's just told ktvu that although the number is low
behind the ad. steve, welcome to the show. >> thanks so much for having me. melissa: i understand that this is a parody and it is meant to start the discussion and that's why we're having you on tonight and i'm going to rise right to the bait and tell you as a mom of small kids and someone who follows industry closely i'm totally offended how disingenuous the words in your ad are. let's start with some of them. you say congress gives the fossil fuel industries, 10 dal billion your subsidies? no they're not. they're exxon hard-earned profit. not giving them to the government to feed the beast that keeps spending and spending our money. instead they're allowed to hang onto a small portion of their profits. >> that is actually not really accurate. there have been numbers of studies, most recently from the organisation for economic co-operation and development but also last year we saw a bill proposed in congress from senator sanders and representative elliso, all of which identify over $10 billion annually that are going to the fossil fuel industry in subsidies. melissa: but you say
sustain the one-two punch is anybody's question. patti ann: joining us now is steve moore from the "wall street journal." hopefully he can give us some answers. good morning, steve. what is the most immediate impact in we go over the cliff? >> we are talking about january 2nd taxing rising on over a hundred million americans. this is a big sock to the wallet of americans of every income group. let's just talk about the middle class for a minute. for those earning about 45 to 75,000 a year they are looking at paying somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,500 a year more in taxes. it's not just the warn buffets and bill gates that will be hit by tax increases. the other part of the cliff that we don't talk that much about is the automatic spending cuts would take effect starting on january 2nd, an 8% reduction in major spending categories, national defense, many of what we call the domestic discretionary programs would also be hit. this is a big fiscal wallop to the economy and a lot of economists believe it could cause a double-dip recession. patti ann: on the other hand we are hearing from
, tinctures and creams. big business. they brought in $25 million in sales. money that cofounder steve deangelo would end up on the street. >> we have taken $25 million a year of illegal drug sales off the streets of oakland and brought them in to harbor side. >> deangelo has been a marijuana activists since he was a teenager. says when he moved to california in 2001 there weren't many places for patients to buy marijuana safely. >> i started harbor side to create a model of best practices for the cannabis industry to demonstrate that it can be distributed in a way that professional and responsible and bring benefits to -- >> since it was founded, harbore world's largest marijuana dispensary. it serves more than 115,000 patients. as expanded to a second location in san jose. deangelo's business attracted media attention from across the globe. >> the harbor side medical center this is actually the largest medical can business disbones knee. >> harbor side says it has 20,000 clients. >> from the harbor side health center in oakland. >> it wasn't just media that was paying attention.
. he still makes more than the late steve jobs, he had a $1 salary every year over his stock options. it is easy to say he is being punished for the stock price decline in apple but i think it was set up before, the precipitous decline. tracy: should heat man up and take $1? lori: i think a company like apple with its huge cash turn and the money it makes probably one of the toughest ceo jobs, probably earns it. tracy: plenty of apple products. lori: we should really judge, that is what the board is for, all of these -- tracy: very diplomatic of view. new applications for jobless claims fall to a five year low. is this a sign of real progress or a technicality tied to the holidays? economist and senior fellow kevin hasset at that. lori: major trading partners around world. it is stronger, people flocking to the dollar, flocking to u.s. treasurys, running out and raising for the exodus, u.s. equities market, it is the fight for equality under way. we're back after this. tracy: three trading days left in 2012. all eyes on the fiscal cliff, sandra smith looking at our commodities are re

[laughter] heather: our steve harrigan is live from palmetto bay where the marine has just arrived and, steve, no doubt a big celebration. >> reporter: heather, a real subdued atmosphere here right now. that four-month ordeal just ended 90 minutes ago. that's when the father, with john hammer, just raced up this driveway. there are some concerns about john hammer's physical condition. they did stop off at an emergency room enroute home from that mexico/texas border. he's suffering from dehydration, his father says he's having trouble standing up, but this will be the greatest christmas the family's ever had. >> reporter: must be a really tough time for you right now. tell us what you're feeling. >> no, this is great right now. i'm glad to be talking to you about that it's over with. because it's really over with. >> reporter: it's still really sinking in to the family this is finally over with. initially, they had a low-key approach to try and win his release. after that failed, though, they went more and more public, appearing on television and also pressing their
when he got successful he moves all his company over to china, giving chinese people jobs. if steve jobs was born in china he wouldn't even have a garage therefore he wouldn't be able to create the apple computer. so i just think we just don't do enough for the people of this country. and the people who are in position to create jobs and do this do not reinvest in the country. therefore i don't think they should get tax breaks. if you want to give these corporate giants tax breaks then give it to those who want to invest in the country, who want to create jobs here, not overcease, and they think try to think of ways to get their money over there into here lower than say the american businessman paying 35%. guest: i mean, i understand your frustration. i think part of it is that the corporate tax code is a mess. we clearly need to fix it in a way that a lot of the politicians talk about fixing it in a revenue neutral way which doesn't add anything to the deficit discussion. it doesn't help make lowering future deficits any easier. so there are some things we need to change about the
